Can I use all 72 sick hours provided by Santa Monica, or only 24 ?
I work for a nursing home in Santa Monica that is part of a large chain. In Santa Monica I read you can accrue up to 72 hours of sick time. Human Resources stated I can only use 24 hours per year, which is California law. The municipal code for Santa Monica 4.62.025 fails to stipulate “usage” and refers to the State Law for guidance, which appears to cap at 24 hours.
It makes no sense to be able to accrue 3 times more than you can use.
Can you speak to this?
Does the Santa Monica Code need to be amended to explicitly state how many hours a person can use of sick time per year?
Or is there a different interpretation?
